- The term "replicant" that is used several times to describe the accused cyborg was coined in Blade Runner (1982), the first movie based on the work of Philip K. Dick. It appears nowhere in any of Dick's works.
One of the shots in the beginning of a rocket being launched is from Gattaca (1997).
In the opening narration, some shots from _Armageddon (1998)_, Starship Troopers (1997) and other science fiction-/disaster movies are used.
A street scene is filmed in a courtyard of Cal Poly Pomona's administration building, the same one used for Jude Law's apartment building in "Gattaca". Several students and staff of Cal Poly Pomona were used as extras for this scene.
The adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story "The Impostor" was originally planned to be one segment (about forty minutes) of a three-part science fiction movie. The production company liked the early "dailies" so much, that the idea was fleshed out into a feature length film.
